Spill Canvas For Ruby

Your light shines through this wattled heart of mine ...
It seeps through the cracks unwoven in a twine.... 

And though my soul is filled with thistles and thorns ..... 
The light you evoke is what my spirit mourns....

But like wilted roses and shattered dreams....
My heart dies in a land of scattered screams.... 

And at times its you that strings me like a laced up shoe...
And silence the madness with the things you do....

If love had a backbone you would be it.... 
And if strength had a nickname Ruby would be fit.... 

Its the thoughts of you why i hold my tongue .... 
And abscond from feelings of joy to feeling totally numb.... 

Because it is you who protects me from the wolves at night.... 
Vociferous vixens with the intentions of spite.... 

To me you are more than mere flesh and bone....
You are my goddess i kneel at your throne.... 

My lion queen my vanilla bean i will always be your man.... 
143286 no one could ever understand....

As i paint the colors of love in the abattoir of your broken heart.... 
There's a personified reflection from you cascading to me like a painting in art.... 

So forever in my heart you will remain.... 
On a spill canvas more than just a stain
